Agro Entrepreneurship Market Facilitation

Course date: 14/10/2019 to 18/10/2019 Duration: 5 Days Course fee: USD 800, KES 65,000

INTRODUCTION

Agriculture sector offers key solutions for development, and is central for hunger and poverty eradication.  Many countries have put effort in the agriculture sector to improve production and consequent food security status of its populace.  While increased agricultural production is essential in improving food security status of household and the nation, it is not sufficient to reduce hunger and poverty. There is therefore a need for promoting the entire agricultural value chain through collaborative efforts among the state and the non-state actors such as donors, banks, civil society organizations, private sector, religious groups, and agricultural associations among other groups. The formation of collaborations can be informed by studying the entire chain, identifying opportunities and constraints and assessing the need for Business Development Services (BDSs) that can help smallholder farmers improve enterprise(s) performance.  This course is intended for various actors in the Agriculture working with communities, in governments, funding agencies, Research organizations and non-government organizations, civil society organizations, among others for Agriculture support activities and other Development programmes.
